We are still "on vacation" Didn't have many goals but perhaps you did? Any progress to report?

My goal last week was this trip --- nothing more, nothing less. And so far, so good. Sort of.

When we came out here, it was originally with intent to relax but, of course, there were/are repairs to be made that the management never bothered to tell us about.

And then there was the suggestion from the insurance agent to get us out from under a cash flow issue: sell this place (getting rid of one horrendous mortgage PLUS all the expenses this place incurs) and change our life insurance from the company's group universal (which is costing us more and more every year and still has no cash value built up in it to a much less expensive whole life from another company, thereby saving us a few more $$$). We were going to have the realty office here evaluate the price, etc., and then go home and call our accountant and get a clear number-crunching view of the situation. But DH was impatient so he called the accountant after talking with the realtors and it looks like, what with mortgage and capital gains (IRS and California --- not sure about Ohio), we might JUST break even! So the for sale sign is in place, the lock box has arrived and the house is up on the website! Here's hoping...

I did manage get get in three holiday things:

a) I met Mary Frances and Liz from Santa Rosa... wonderful people (as are every soul I've ever met from iVillage)

b) I have read - FInished WIll in the World by Stephen Greenblatt
